A fantastic book... wonderful insight into the Scriptures. (Ian Upton, Sydney, Australia)
In this classic book, we are shown the breadth of impact of Christ... The Bible stands as a whole, a planned, inspired and flawless whole with a constant thread of God's rescue plan for mankind, rather than a disparate mosaic of books on unconnected issues. (Edwin Cross, London)

The Waxkeep and Skyros ebook editions (both of which I own) are nicely formatted, the only quibble to me being that space is used to distinguish paragraphs in the Waxkeep edition; I much prefer the traditional paragraph indention used in the Skyros edition, that being the reason why I acquired it even though I had previously downloaded the other. (Each was free at the time.) In both, an active TOC provides direct access to all Bible books being addressed.
Insofar as Christ is prefigured throughout the Old Testament, Hodgkin goes book-by-book to identify OT passages that reflect Jesus's life and teachings, and His fulfillment of OT Messianic prophecy. And just as the entire OT points to the coming of Jesus as Lord and Savior, the NT proclaims His Glory as the Risen Christ -- and these passages are also presented and examined.
Many religion books written in the early 1900's are antiquated, their old-fashioned style verbose or tedious, and their doctrine either questionable or obscure. Not so this one. Its unspeculative, soundly-traditional, Scripture-based content and explanations are refreshingly faithful to God's Holy Word and are amply but succinctly presented. It is not only very readable but uplifting and delightful -- and, more importantly, it is consistently God-honoring.
Over the years I have found Hodgkin's book useful for teaching, for personal Bible study, and for devotional reading -- so much so that my old paperback reprint edition has fallen apart from heavy use. I am very happy to now have two ebook editions to replace it.
